1 Year Milestones are a great way to celebrate how fast these 365 have gone by. Though it may not seem so during those sleepless nights, we will never have this time back. As parents we feel like if we just photograph them enough we can hold onto this time forever. It is both wonderful and sad to watch them grow knowing this time is always fleeting. My goal in every photo session is to focus on the subject and keep things simple. Soft muted tones, rustic style and all about baby. Soft comfortable fabrics, textures and lighting that will help capture natural and beautiful photos of your baby. Bring them in Jean overalls or a plain white onesie, a muted dress with bare toes....... Keep it simple. We want to showcase the baby squish...rolls....folds....toes and beautiful little features.
In home lifestyle baby photography sessions as well as studio sessions available. Our studio is located in Courtice just a few minutes between both Bowmanville and Oshawa. For on location baby photography sessions I travel throughout Durham region and offer suggestions and ideas on locations that may best suit your families style. 1 year milestone sessions can be booked for just baby or as a family. I suggest taking part. Often parents are the very best at interacting and creating beautiful candid moments between themselves and there recent 1 year old. These sessions are for those who are not looking for a cake smash session, rather more natural organic style images with a lifestyle feel. Meaning just beautiful photographs of your baby, plain and simple!
During a family photography session I do give lots of gentle and easy going direction. My hope is that you will feel like your just playing and having fun with your baby and not taking photos. Family sessions include time for just baby & the rest of the family too. Up to 6 subjects are welcome during a family session and I will be happy to co-ordinate any combination you prefer.

One year, It's a milestone for sure. It's cute and sweet and loud and clumsy. These little humans of ours are growing faster then our hearts can handle. I love that independence comes with age but I also feel sad that my little one squirms out of my arms and runs away. A sure sign I'm entering stage 5 clingy but I don't mind because this time is fleeting and I'll take all the snuggles and hugs I can get at least until she can outrun me ;)
I photograph babies because I know how fast they grow. I do now and will continue to miss every part of her as she grows, changes and becomes different and more. My children are the heart of what I do. They started the spark, my intense need to document these little things and details before I forgot them was so important to me. For these reasons I photograph babies and families. I want to create moments that are genuine and candid. Full of personality and spirit and real life.
There is no need to fake a smile when you're laughing!
